The sky's the limit for fab four!

On Sunday, 14 May, staff and supporters will take the plunge in the name of charity - plummeting more than 10,000 feet over Cambridgeshire to help fund 'extras' for BCHC patients.

Four members of staff have signed up to a skydive to raise funds for the BCHC charity.

After receiving a full briefing and armed with the essential kit, the four daring jumpers will exit the aircraft with a qualified instructor. After free falling for over 30 seconds the parachute will deploy in time for a soft landing.  

Meet our four dare-devils...

Husband-and-wife team Peter and Emma Glass (pictured) are long-serving employees who both work directly with patients. Peter is a porter at Moseley Hall Hospital and Emma a clinical team leader with the rapid response service: 

Emma said: "Collectively, my husband Pete and I have worked for the Trust for more than 27 years. We first met here and so it has a special place in our hearts. We are passionate about our patients and ensuring they receive the best care."

Emily Higgins is an occupational therapist at ward 8 in Moseley Hall Hospital. Emily will be joined by her friend Katie Nicholas who is also raising money for the specialist stroke rehabilitation unit on Ward 8.

"After completing a four month placement at ward 8 in summer 16 I was delighted to secure a job here after graduating. Thanks to donations we are able to make a real difference for our patients and I want to help raise money by taking on this challenge’’

BCHC charity provides the ‘extras’ for patients - these are things that can bring a smile to patients, enhance their experience and improve their care with us.

From in-house activities and additional equipment to the latest training for staff and support with research, these ‘extras’ can make a huge difference.

Could you or someone you know take on this challenge? 

We're looking for people to sign up to the next skydive challenge on 8 October, which costs just £50.
